The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will host the third round of the Cambodia-United Arab Emirates Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) talks in 2023. The plan for the next round of talks was finalised at the second CEPA session that was recently held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
“An agreement will strengthen the traditional friendship between the two countries and enhance growing bilateral relations,” Cambodian commerce minster Pan Sorasak was quoted as saying by local media reports.
“The latest talks in Phnom Penh made clear progress in several areas,” Cambodia’s commerce ministry stated. The Southeast Asian country is exploring the export potential for various types of items including garments, footwear, and travel (GFT) goods to the UAE.
